Abstract:

In these lectures, I give an elementary introduction to conformal field theory in the context of probability theory and complex analysis. I consider statistical fields and define Ward functionals in terms of their Lie derivatives. Based on this approach, I explain some equations of conformal field theory and outline their relation to SLE theory.
